Youth in Revolt

I didn't realize that this book was being turned into a movie before I started listening to it. I don't know if I will see the movie, or just wait for it to come out on DVD, if it's anything like the book, I will just wait.
The book was entertaining. I was never a teenage boy so I can't really relate to a lot of what the book goes into, however, it was entertaining. The author goes into some crazy details of a teenage boy's sex life, or rather lack there of. It is hard to believe that 14 year old kids talk the way the author says they do, constantly calling each other "darling" and whatever. I cannot ever remember using that term ever....not even in my adult life.
This book is also a part of a series, which I was not aware of, and it ends quite suddenly. So now I have to find the rest of the books in the series to find out if Nick ever ends up with his darling Sheena.
***Edited to add***
As my recent commenter Heather said, yes, the vocabulary with the characters is amazing, probably what kept me going. Not that it is a bad book, I did enjoy it, however, I find now that I am older, it is difficult to read high school books or Young Adult, because well, they are meant for an entirely different generation. And I will admit, the humor in the book stems totally from the one thing teenage boys want......to have sex. And Nick, the main character, seems to jump through whatever hoops is needed for him to obtain this goal.
2 down.....98 to go!
